Israel - Haifa

Okay, I don't have much time for this post as I am sitting on a park bench using random free wi-fi. 
Really. This is a view from where I am sitting.

We made it to Israel and are staying in Haifa. I was able to go for a 4.5 mile run this morning with two of my companions, Steve and Karen, both from California. If you think Brady Street hill is bad, come run the hills in Haifa. The city was established along the Mediterranean, and then it was built up. What a good hill workout! And a great way to see the city. Our group traveled to Lo'Hamei today, which is the Ghetto Fighters' Museum. It is located on a kibbutz. This was an awesome museum that had information regarding Treblinka, resistance fighters in the ghettos, and art as resistance. I have gathered so much information already to use in the classroom.


On our way back, we stopped at the Bahai Gardens.
Bahai Gardens. Overlooking the Mediterranean. 
It's 8:42 right now and we have a big day ahead of us tomorrow - we drive to Jerusalem and are there for three nights. Like I said, I'm thoroughly enjoying my time here. I'll try to keep you updated!

p.s. Happy anniversary to my wonderful husband!
